           I had forgotten about that.       That means it could have been Cowglen after all.

Who was she writing the letter to?

Was she living at the hospital?

Sancti,
            My grandmother's daughter was engaged to be married, and she was writing the letter to her future son-in Law, Phil, who was in the army and living in Manchester at that time.     

          This elusive Military Hospital had officers & Majors etc - all of them foreigners - all lumped together in the same hospital.     Australians & New Zealanders as well.     Lots of Polish, some of them airmen.    Seems to me that this would help identify it.      But it isn't so easy.

Looks like there are a number of possible hospitals it could be. Gartloch might also be one to consider?

Cavan/Leitrim - McGovern, McGourty, Murphy
